MLB Moves and Notes: July 30th

By on 7/30/2014 07:00:00 AM

Several players came off the DL yesterday, with some good news in particular for the injury-plagued Colorado Rockies.


Atlanta Braves: placed RHP Shae Simmons on the 15-day DL.'s Mark Bowman tweeted that the cause was a right shoulder strain. Juan Jaime came back up from Triple A to take his place on the roster.

Colorado Rockies: activated 1B Justin Morneau and RHP Boone Logan. Both had been sidelined since the All-Star break, with neck stiffness keeping Morneau out while Logan was battling diverticulitis.

Los Angeles Dodgers: activated LHP Scott Elbert and designated him for assignment. Elbert had been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and spent the whole month with the Albuquerque Isotopes, compiling a 1.23 ERA with nine strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings.

San Diego Padres: activated SS Everth Cabrera. The Padres put Cabrera on the DL at the start of the month with a left hamstring strain. Veteran Jason Lane, who made a remarkable return to the majors for an impressive spot start on Monday after converting from outfielder to starting pitcher, was sent back to the minors.


Cincinnati Reds reliever Manny Parra has been experiencing back trouble, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer's John Fay. The Reds did not need much bullpen help last night as Mike Leake went 7 2/3 before Jonathan Broxton and Aroldis Chapman completed the win, so Parra got another day to rest.  He last pitched on July 20th.

On the mend

Fay also notes that Logan Ondrusek threw long toss, but suggested he won't be returning any time soon.

Shannon Drayer of ESPN Seattle reports that Michael Saunders is hoping to be ready for rehab before the Mariners finish their current road trip, which ends on Sunday. Saunders took batting practice on Tuesday.'s Greg Johns says James Paxton will throw a bullpen in Cleveland today, with manager Lloyd McClendon suggesting Paxton could start for the team on Saturday.

Rehab roundup

Chicago Cubs GM Jed Hoyer told Carrie Muskat of that Kyuji Fujikawa would make at least one more rehab appearance with the Iowa Cubs, but indicated the right-hander will return soon.

Rockies right-hander Christian Bergman threw three innings for the Double A Tulsa Drillers, giving up two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two. Bergman is recovering from the broken hand he suffered in mid-June.

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jim Henderson wasn't able to make another rehab appearance as planned on Thursday because Nashville's game was rained out. The Brewers need to make a decision on Henderson's status in the near future as his 30-day rehab period is coming to an end this week.
